Lately I haven’t even wanted to blog and yet at the same time I long to write a post that is worth your time reading and worth my time writing. Strange huh?
With the Holidays here and life getting a bit hectic I have tried to slow down in areas that take up time. When I do that I end up just sitting and feeling useless. I’m a doer by nature so its hard for me to just sit. I know, I am running a lot and training for a 1/2 marathon and that takes time and I need to rest. I can’t do everything I would like to do. There’s just not enough time in the day for that!
Balance… that’s what I am trying to find right now. Will I ever achieve this, I don’t know. But I long for it. I want to write blog posts, work on my photography, train for another 1/2 marathon and a marathon, work, hang out with friends, do my cleaning in the house, and spend time quietly with the Lord. Some how this does not all get achieved in a balanced way.
By the time I leave work I am exhausted and I don’t want to be on the computer at home. So, my blog posts and my photography get pushed to the side.
The cold weather and the shorter days don’t help much either. I usually want to curl up on the couch and watch a good cheesy, girly movie! 🙂
If you can’t tell already, I am very excited about this! I have some more specific goals for next year with running that I will share soon!
So, how do you balance it all? Is there really a way to achieve balance in everything?
